  • News: Can Traceability Help Protect Japan's Food Export Sales?

    My colleagues in the IDC Manufacturing Insights group wrote about the impacts of the Japanese disaster on large manufacturer's supply chains, soon after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in their March newsletter. I would like to examine the impact on food supplies and markets, particularly seafood, rice, green leafy vegetables and dairy products, which have been severely impacted by the events in Japan. In the short term, production has stalled or at minimum slowed for many of these products, reducing availability for local markets.

  • News: A Fly in the Ointment: Pricing Algorithms Run Amuck

So naturally Ron Kleinman's April 24th post on the ARTS's (Association for Retail Technology Standards) Linkedin Group, "When pricing algorithms collide...it isn't pretty", caught my eye. It reminded me of the value of business rules in pricing, the common sense these rules should instantiate, and the danger of running algorithmic price optimization in a "lights out" fashion.
